Henry Pyrgos joined Glasgow Warriors in summer 2010 after taking leave from a chemistry degree at Loughborough University to pursue his rugby ambitions.
He had his breakthrough year in 2012 when his classic scrum-half skills propelled him into the Scotland squad and he looks set to have a meaningful presence in the Warriors squad for some time to come.
His form in his debut campaign saw him win selection for the Scotland A team, who went through season 2010/11 undefeated. In February 2012, Pyrgos cemented his growing reputation within the Warriors fold by being awarded a two-year contract extension that ties him to the club until at least the end of May 2014.
Outwith rugby, he has played for West of England at hockey (under-15) and Dorset at cricket (under-17). His father played rugby for Harlequins and Loughborough Students, and his mother represented England at under-21 hockey.
Henry is a former pupil of Bryanston School in Dorset.
